Chelsea Football Club has confirmed Mohamed Salah’s permanent transfer to Serie A giants AS Roma for an undisclosed fee.
The Egyptian winger barely featured for the Blues after joining in the 2014 January transfer window, spending a year and a half out on loan since.
Salah shone at his first club FC Basel, but made just 19 appearances for Chelsea in total, before catching the eye in Italy.
Chelsea announced the departure of Salah on Wednesday as new coach Antonio Conte continues to reshape his squad less than two weeks ahead of the team’s first game of the Premier League season.
Salah signed for Chelsea from Basel in January 2014 for £11m on a five-and-a-half year deal, and made his debut a month later against Newcastle.
After playing 13 Premier League games, he was loaned to Fiorentina at the end of the 2014-15 season and has remained in Italy since then.
